“I’m proud of a lot of things we’ve accomplished on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, but I think I’m most proud of all the students we’ve helped stay in school for the last 20 years, and our biggest fundraiser for HBCUs is the Fantastic Voyage cruise,” Joyner shared in a press release. “This year our lineup makes it all the more special — Janet Jackson, Charlie Wilson, Maxwell and an endless list of performers!”
That endless list includes names such as Fantasia, Chrisette Michelle, KEM, Smokie Norful, Pastor Shirley Caesar and others.
The Fantastic Voyage will set sail April 7-April 14, leaving from Miami, Florida, traveling to St. Thomas, USVI and Grand Turk. With less than two months left before the cruise, payments are due February 28th.
